Inhaltsangabe: Spark the Creative Flame is a resource that strives to inform, inspire, and motivate all who work in craft, whatever the medium, and wish to improve the creative expression of their work, whether via college-level or other formal art and craft programs or self-directed learning. While the book features flameworked glass and a selection of the leading artisans who do this work, the insights and recommendations presented herein transcend material and speak to broader issues relevant to all creative craftspeople.

This work was compiled, and most of it was written, by Paul Stankard, an internationally acclaimed artist and pioneer in the studio glass movement. Paul s training in scientific glassblowing and employment in industrial scientific glass during the 1960s allowed him to master his craft before committing himself to life on the creative side. His successful transition from industry to studio art is due in large part to his need to be creative and his incessant pursuit of excellence in artistic expression.
